“Like Gus Van Sant’s Elephant, Jesús flattens its drama to portray its teenage characters’ mundane and shocking acts with equal dispassion, refusing to ascribe causality, meaning, or judgment to their actions.”
   Slant Magazine

“Imbued with striking realism, the film owes much of its impact to the exceptional photography by Barbara Alvarez, who skilfully plays with the shadows of night and gives the director the perfect conditions for injecting his style, full of menacing atmospheres, and sketching a counter-relief of a Chilean society that is brutal and troubled.”
   Cineuropa

“Nicolás Durán, along with the rest of the movie’s juvenile crew – including Sebastián Ayala – ray out freshness throughout the complex path of the characters, strengthening the documentary-like features of the movie.”
